Taxi Dancing Lyrics

Well, she started out just to be a dancer
Gonna make her livin' dancin' in the Broadway shows
So she hitchhiked cross country from Pasaroba to the Big Red Apple
Where your dreams are made and your debts must be paid on time

CHORUS
I'll hold you close taxi dancer
And I'll listen to how you outgrew your dreams and they faded away
I'll hold you close taxi dancer
We can pretend this floor is the Broadway stage.

Well, she wasn't used to livin' in the city
So she took a job cleanin up as a maid at the Gramercy Park Hotel
And all her auditions, you know, didn't turn out so pretty
So she took a job dancin' at the bar down the street as well

CHORUS

Well, I don't know how long or how far her fortune did take her
But I heard she sits alone drunk downtown on 42nd Street
And sometimes an old butch will slip a quarter into the jukebox
And she'll stagger to the bar and dance with that gal for free

CHORUS
